Hazelnut Marketing Board launches new contest

Chef competition promotes recipes with Oregon hazelnuts

The Hazelnut Marketing Board (HMB) invites chefs to bring their culinary skills to the table with a signature Oregon Hazelnut recipe for a chance to win a cash prize of $3,000.

From January 1 – March 9, the competition asks chefs to create a unique recipe starring Oregon hazelnuts and submit the recipe and photo using the online form at OregonHazelnuts.org/contest.  Entries must use Oregon-grown hazelnuts in the form(s) of their choice, including chopped, diced, sliced, whole, meal, flour, paste or butter. Submissions will be scored on the following criteria: Creative use of Oregon hazelnuts (50%), and overall culinary creativity, which includes 3 factors: originality, appetite appeal and presentation (50%).

HMB will promote the contest with a print ad, e-blast and custom digital content targeted toward chefs and foodservice operators. Following the contest, the winner will also enjoy time in the spotlight with post-event publicity, helping to inspire other chefs to get creative with their use of Oregon’s hazelnuts. “Oregon hazelnuts add such a unique, rich flavor to recipes,” says Meredith Nagely, manager of the Hazelnut Marketing Board. “We hope this contest inspires chefs to experiment with hazelnuts in new ways and discover their versatility.”
